Keeping to our third Thursday in the month we are planning to meet on Thursday, 21st October from 10 until 12 in the Anglican Centre. As we are only a very small group at the moment we would welcome any newcomers, especially as we will be busy sorting books and other items for the Fundraising Event on Saturday, 23rd October. Please let me know if you would like to join us and I’ll look forward to seeing you.

St. Catherine’s Open House Fundraising Event – 23rd October
Over the next couple of weeks you may well be approached by a variety of people to help with their section of our Open House Fundraising Event – here are this week’s requests for help from Susanna:
As part of St. Catherine’s Open House, we’re going to have a section with books and toys. It will only be half the size of our traditional booksale, but helpers will still be needed to organise it! On Tuesday, October 19th, from 18:30, we plan to get together in the Anglican Centre to sort through our stocks and prepare the books we want to display. On Friday 22nd, we will meet probably from about 17:00 to bring the books from the Anglican Centre and set up. During the Open House, from 11:00 till 16:00 on the 23rd, it would be good to have one or two „sales assistants“. And after the event is over at 16:00 on Saturday 23rd, we’ll need to put away the books we haven’t sold. If you would like to help with any of these, that would be fantastic! Please let me know at email@example.com
If you have English language books or gently-used toys that you would like to donate, then do drop the off either during our sorting session on the 19th, during set-up on the 22nd or even at the beginning of the Open House on the 23rd.
Previous requests for help with home produce, boutique and accessories and refreshments can be found here
We also pray for:
- the upcoming Council Meeting, for guidance in their decision making and God’s blessing of the implementation of those decisions.
- all those countries where elections have taken place recently: among others Germany, Canada, Russia, Hong Kong, Iceland, Ethiopia, the Bahamas. Give wisdom and the will to seek the common good to those who will form governments and for those parties in opposition.
- those anxious or fearful of the pandemic as well as the vaccines and variants
- for those travelling for work or leisure
- for October baptism anniversaries and birthdays
We are hoping to hold our long postponed Confirmation service in early January 2022.
If you are interested in being confirmed (or have a young person in your household 14+ who might be ready for this step) please speak to the Chaplain.
